The alcohol ban is now in effect for the Lower Lake Creek Falls recreation area. Possession or consumption of alcohol at the recreation site or in the parking area is strictly prohibited and will be enforced. Violators are subject to prosecution and fines.Lake Creek Falls has been a popular swimming and picnicking spot since the early 1900s. However, swimming in the swift, shallow water near the falls can be extremely risky. Visitors are encouraged to use extreme caution at all times. In the fall and winter, this site is a great spot to catch the amazing show put on by Coho and Chinook salmon and steelhead as they migrate upstream to spawn. In 1989, the Bureau of Land Management built a concrete fish ladder at this site, opening up more than 110 miles of stream habitat to fish.
From Eugene, Oregon take Highway 99 North for approximately 10 miles to Highway 36. Go west on Highway 36 for 26 miles. Parking for the recreation site is located .5 miles past Triangle Lake on the right side of the road.
